Boron Nitride (BN) Nanoparticles

Boron nitride nanoparticles and nanosheets have recently drawn much attention due to their unique mechanical, optical, physical, and chemical properties. They are regarded as interesting materials for various applications, such as boron neutron capture therapy agents, antibacterial agents, nanocarriers for drug delivery, solid lubricants, nanofiller reinforcing phases in a metallic matrix, catalysts, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy substrates, and polymer matrix composites. They have also found applications as an element of electronic, plasmonic, optoelectronic gas and biological sensor, photodetector, water purifier, and magnetic and semiconducting devices. The broad range of applications of boron nitride nanoparticles is due to the combination of chemical, optical, and physical properties, including high thermal stability, larger interlayer shear force, resistance against oxidization, enhanced adsorbing capacity, low specific density, excellent dispersion stability and transparency with a wide bandgap. There are numerous methods to fabricate boron nitride nanoparticles, such as ion-intercalation-assisted exfoliations, pulsed laser deposition, pyrolysis, and surface segregation-based methods. Boron nitride (BN  is a synthetic material that, although discovered in the early 19th century, was not developed as a commercial material until the latter half of the 20th century. Boron and nitrogen are neighbors of carbon in the periodic table – in combination, boron, and nitrogen have the same number of outer shell electrons – the atomic radii of boron and nitrogen are similar to that of carbon. It is not surprising, therefore, that boron nitride and carbon exhibit similarities in their crystal structure.
